This tragic event has claimed the lives of over 2,800 people and left a trail of destruction in villages nestled in the High Atlas Mountains.
The country has already witnessed more than 25 aftershocks since the earthquake, which had a magnitude of 6.8.
The epicenter of this devastating earthquake was identified in the Ighil area of the High Atlas mountains. Furthermore, a 4.9-magnitude aftershock was recorded a mere 19 minutes following the initial quake, as reported by the US Geological Survey.
Most of the tragic casualties have been concentrated in remote and challenging-to-reach mountainous regions, as confirmed by statements from the interior ministry.
Disturbing visual documentation has emerged, depicting numerous structures reduced to rubble, and significant damage has been inflicted upon segments of Marrakech's renowned red walls. Additionally, buildings within the old city, a UNESCO World Heritage site, have suffered extensive damage, with photographic evidence revealing the presence of crushed vehicles and debris scattered throughout the affected areas.
The aftermath of Storm Daniel in Libya has been marked by immense tragedy, with a reported death toll of at least 5,000 people, and an additional 10,000 individuals are feared to be missing. This devastating situation resulted from the torrential rain that inundated Libya's northeast, causing two dams to collapse and unleashing further flooding in already affected areas.
Tragically, among the casualties, at least 145 were Egyptian, according to officials in the northeastern city of Tobruk, Libya.
The eastern city of Derna has borne the brunt of this catastrophe, where as many as 6,000 people are currently unaccounted for. Othman Abduljalil, the health minister in Libya's eastern administration, described the situation as "catastrophic" during his visit to the city on Monday. Authorities believe that entire neighborhoods in Derna may have been swept away by the flooding.
The crisis in Derna has overwhelmed local healthcare facilities, rendering hospitals inoperable and filling morgues to capacity.
Families of residents who lived in Derna are living in fear and uncertainty, unable to contact their loved ones since the floods struck. Ayah, a Palestinian woman with cousins in Derna, expressed her deep concern, explaining that all communication with the city appears to be down, leaving her unsure about the safety of her relatives. She described the videos depicting the flooding as terrifying and spoke for many who share this sense of dread.
